what do you think? Fresh out of the chair blood and all. Unfortunately the ointment gives off a glare. I had to save it as a gif or the file was too big to post here. anyone know why? i've never had a problem posting a pic before.

Just seen the same tatt on the wall. Will you stay with the same color scheme ?

yeah i found it poking around the internet. I didn't like that it's already out there( not totally unique ) but I guess so is the Steal You Face logo plus I didn't want color.

Ah--I always forget; my kid's is what I call "smokestack lightning" (top view of skull with red/blue sep by bolt), and yet that is what people mean by the "SYFace" symbol, right?

what did Jerry call it? Laughing Jack or Jap one of the two. I read it in an interview where he was uneasy with the design like it might be a bad omen.

Fuck it -just hit nashvillescene.com. Hillbilly casino looks like fun. Nashville has got some tourist, big hair, fake nails, they all look like Faith Hill (I mean Faith, Jr - Taylor Swift) elements AND then it is has some real salt of the earth honest to goodness true blue. Come on, this is the town where an Army Ranger Rhodes Scholar janitor got his break by giving his handwritten lyrics to Johny Cash.

Somewhere outside Salinas, he let her slip away...

Have a blast. I'm envious of a visit back to the southland.

"I guess that answers the 'deadhead forever' question! "

it does for me. Two of the kids think I'm going to regret it being a fad and all. While that's certainly something I might say or think for them I'm pretty confident that after being my favorite band more than half my life and kind of burned in my DNA from so many shared experiences, I think It's safe to say they'll be standing the test of time

deadhead forever right here!

This stealie tat I had drilled in my arm 15 yrs. ago, is a lesson in letting the professional's take care of delicate things like GD tatoos.
It was put on me w/ a homemade gun and drawn up by a drunk amatuer. The gun was an old pen body, cassette motor and a rather heavy guitar string. He did get the mumber of teeth right in the skull as well as the lightning bolt. I was this guns first and only victim.
Thank god I had it put on the inside of my arm (come to find one of the most painful places to get tat'd)
After assembling the gun and making ink out of shampoo cigarette ashes, and god knows what else, he tightened his grip and went for the first line and proceed to slice my arm open like a bucther. There was no stopping , He finished and it was a disaster, Thank God I didn't get gangrene LOL Four trips to a professional and its finally starting to look like something other than a patch of scar tissue.
Yours looks fabulous and bit sore perhaps at the bottom where the tissue is softer, Keep that ointment on it and no picking or scrathing. Later

That story cracked my up big time, nice imagery!!

Glad it worked out in the end.

I myself am happily tattooless, I do have my share of scars though.

would that be JOTS' new tat, or the 'Strolling Skeletons' GD motif 28-29 seconds into the 'Turlington's Tatto Remover' vid?

Did I ever tell you about talking to my kid about NOT getting a tatoo and what happened as a result (short story: he got four!)?

Cool--I should post a pic of my kids; it's a really nice DEAD one (smokligh).

yeah Tell but at least your kids still dig or at least respect the music from what I remember. My 11 yr old daughter openly mocks me. The 7 year old who loves everything is now starting to not be as enthusiastic. Oh well at least I still have him brainwashed to still e a Raiders fan.

Thanks Wayne. I was planning on getting it anyway but I REALLY wish I was seeing that show. I'm still seeing trails from the carrot that was dangled amd taken away so fast.

Hope they pull out some great shit for you.
